ok, so all the actual backend stuff is almost there from what i gather?
what you would do is basically a set of ui bits that display 
informations/control devices exposed by such server.

I think Plasa would be quite perfect for an user interface of such a project 
(just quickly thinking about it, dataengines, remote widgets, qml plasmoids 
seem exactly the perfect match)

looking forward to it :)

on the parts that are most in the backend stuff, and for testing with actual 
hardware i fear you would be a bit on your own (but you seem to be already 
expert of it ;)) for all the ui work, how to do a plasma shell around it, we 
will be very happy to help
